From 29 November to 2 December, Naval Group attends the second edition of  Egypt Defense Exhibition (EDEX). This year, Naval Group will be showcasing its leading technologies designed to meet the needs of modern navies and its proven expertise for transfers of technology. 

Come and meet us at booth H2-C30! 

Contributing to naval and industrial autonomy in Egypt 

Naval Group has a long-term partnership with the Egyptian authorities and industry. This strategic  alliance is central in the maintenance and the modernisation of the Egyptian fleet and participates  to the reinforcement of the Egyptian industry.  

The Egyptian Navy operates the FREMM frigate Tahya Misr delivered in 2015, the two Landing  Helicopter Docks Nasser and Sadat delivered in 2016 and the El Fateh, the first of class of the  Gowind corvette series for Egypt, built in Lorient and delivered to Egypt in September 2017.  

Several milestones have been celebrated in the past months for the Gowind® program thanks to  the expertise and skills acquired by Alexandria Shipyard through a high level of fruitful cooperation  with Naval Group. The Port Said corvette, first Gowind® to be built in Egypt thanks to a successful  transfer of technology from Naval Group to Alexandria Shipyard, was delivered in January 2021.  El Moez and Luxor, the last two corvettes built in Egypt are set to be delivered in 2022. 

At the end of the construction process of the Gowind® corvettes, the Egyptian Navy’s fleet will  include a total of seven of Naval Group’s most performant vessels. 

Naval Group presents its leading technologies at EDEX 2021 

The EDEX exhibition is an opportunity for Naval Group to show its rich experience in international  naval ship building through advanced industrial cooperation programs. Naval Group will also  showcase its leading technologies created for modern navies among which: 

• Belh@rra® frigate 

Belharra® is the new combat ship for naval supremacy and crisis management designed for navies  looking for a compact frigate able to perform the largest range of missions stand-alone or within  a task force either for high sea duration missions as for shallow water operation in congested and  contested operational environment. As the first digital frigate, Belharra® features high level

capabilities in anti-air, anti-surface, anti-submarine and asymmetric warfare domains, taking into account French Navy operational legacy acquired in wartime situation. 

The FDI, the first Belharra® frigate for the French Navy will be delivered in 2024 and a MoU was  signed with Greece earlier this year to open discussions for 3 frigates and one in option. 

• Scorpene® submarine 

This submarine is capable of carrying out all types of missions, such as surface warfare, anti submarine warfare, special operations or intelligence gathering. It is extremely stealthy and fast,  and is equipped by weapon launching tubes, and various weapons (torpedoes, missiles, mines).  

Over fourteen Scorpene® submarines were sold by Naval Group to foreign customers and Indian  and Brazilian submarines are being built locally thanks to a successful transfer of technology. 

• F21 heavyweight torpedo 

Benefiting of highly advanced mission system and very long endurance, F21 is the first  heavyweight torpedo able to perform complex mission autonomously. It has far superior  characteristics to any other heavyweight torpedo currently in service and is offered for export,  strengthening Naval Group's submarine offering. 

The F21 torpedo is equipped with a very high level of computing power, which gives it exceptional  real-time processing capabilities, an advanced mission system and increased autonomy. These  technical characteristics considerably broaden the possibilities of tactical use with an unparalleled  capacity for target discrimination, even in very difficult environments
